Apple's great at utilizing Last Mover Advantage, and AirTags will probably be another example of this. Hopefully some cool new tech on the iPad Pros as well.

"Spring Loaded" So they are either going to show off their own foldable smartphone, or introduce a new spring keyed keyboard for tablets/macs, or some other non event - doubt they will show off any AR glassware or anything noteworthy.

That tag really is apt.

Might get new iPad Pro, my 2018 one has done me well but I always like me a new screen.

I'm looking forward to them taking podcasts seriously again. Their podcast app needs a major overhaul.

Podcast plus really? There is not a single podcast I would subscribe to other than maybe Dan Carlin's Hardcore History since they are as long as audio books anyway. But I could just buy those for $1/episode. Every single other podcast is replaceable.

His podcast really is great,. He has a second one as well. Its very similar.

I would be interested if they pull in other podcasts that have subscriber additions like mysterious universe (a fun show that really doesn't take it self to seriously) and all the parcast ones (are those all only on Spotify though?).

It’s well known this event is primarily about iPads. Not phones or keyboards.
Anticipate an all new flip out spring loaded keyboard for the IPad. And no, - apple events are primarily product event's not directly tied to any particular product. This event is typically used to in fact
tease other events and other products.

Not expecting anything exciting. Probably just a new iPad Pro, Air Tags, new Podcast crap, and maybe new Air Pods. Will be super surprised if we see the new iMacs. That’s what I’m waiting for 😋

Oh maybe we’ll finally get iOS 14.5 final. Think we’re on 8th beta now :messenger_tears_of_joy:

spring announcements suck. WWDC + Fall is where the fun is at.

Does Apple give every employee a makeover during the onboarding process?

Should you really show some one breaking into your new super high tech space ship facility?
